THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I was hooked from page 1. A compelling sci-fi with fantasy prose and two main characters that you will fall in love with--Andra is so relatable and Zhade is a sass machine. AND.

Andra is all of us, she wakes up confused, out of place, and grasping for the truth at every turn--you can't help but cheer her on. Zhade is lovable a ...more
